Two thirds of American (68%) get their news via social media ( 2018 Pew Research Center) . Facebook is far and away where most people get their news. (1 in 4). 59% of all links shared on social networks aren’t actually clicked on at all , implying the majority of article shared aren’t based on actual reading. (Forbes Aug 2016)

The tools are simple. An attention grabbing headline. Filter that headline to a specific demographic. Liberal, Conservative, extremest etc. and within hours it will reach Facebook. Extreme views will often enter through the back door in the form of Direct Message (DM’s) and eventually make it to someones timeline. Because only 41% of these articles are actually read, they are rarely aged out.

October 2016:  Various anonymous Twitter accounts began posting false rumors that Anthony Weiner’s laptop had been recovered by the FBI, and that on it was proof that he had been involved in child sexual abuse. The rumors quickly grew on the alt right community and among supporters of Donald Trump.  Detail in the stories grew linking the Democrats to pedophila and human trafficking ring supposedly by New York PD.  On various fake news sites.

Pizzagate is born

November 2016: What began as a conspiracy theory during the 2016 Presidential race went viral. After the personal email account of Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta was hacked and released by WikiLeaks.  Theorist claimed the emails contained coded messages connecting restaurants and high ranking Democrats with an alleged sex ring involving the pizzeria “Comet Ping Pong” in Washington DC.  Those involved in promoting pizzagate began to claim that a code was being used – that code included references to junk food, including “pizza”, which was supposedly used in place of the word “girl”.

While Pizzagate has been wildly debunked by the media, from Fox News to the New York Times and the stories have been removed by Facebook, Tweeter and other sites.  Its far from dead. It’s still alive in the media universe. A story encouraged by Michael Flynn about the evil Democrats, Hillary Clinton, sex trafficking children in tunnels under the Comet Ping Pong Pizzeria in Washington D.C.

December 2016, Edgar Maddison Welch, a 28-year-old man from Salisbury, North Carolina. On the 4th, he fired three shots into the Comet Ping Pong Pizzeria in Washington DC using a AR 15 rifle , striking walls, a desk, and a door. According to court documents, Welch attempted to recruit friends three days before the attack by urging them to watch a YouTube video about the conspiracy. Mr Welch is currently in prison,serving a four year term.

A few days later. 52 year old Yusif Lee Jones of Shreveport Louisiana intending to call Comet, mistakenly called Besta Pizza and told employees he was trying to “save the kids” and threatened to “shoot everyone in the place,”   Mr Jones was sentenced to a month in Jail and two years supervised release.

January 2019,  Ryan Rimas Jaselskis 22, of Northridge, Ca set fire to the Comet Ping Pong Pizzeria in Washington DC.  Workers in the restaurant successfully out the fire.   He faces up to 20 years in jail .

She’s was not Amused 

Forget Russia or North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.  Britain may be the first country to attack the US.    The official mouthpiece of the US has landed in the UK,

So far the man who personally has lost ONE BILLION DOLLARS. Is advising the country on Brexit.    His need to attack British politicians is uniting Brits all of the county.

Last year, he broke protocol by keeping the 93 year old Monarch waiting for 15 minutes.   Neither he or his wife bowed to the Queen and  he walked in front of the Queen.  No one walks in front of the Queen.  That action caused a stir on social media in Britain.

At least he didn’t push her Majesty .

The President has once again attacked  London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan . He has called him short and stone cold loser.

Before she was royalty, The President attacked Megan Markle who said she would move to Canada if he was elected President.   His response was “I didn’t know she was nasty” .  In Trumpian Style, he denied ever saying it and it was fake news.   Of course is a tape.   The good news, he wont cross paths with the Duchess or her husband Prince Harry, on this visit .

Newsworthy(Fake):  Donald in planning to talk Trade with the Brits.  Only on the condition that they agree to a Tariff before they meet.

There will be several protests during his three day visit. The largest will take place tomorrow.  Some pro,but most anti Trump.

Donald J Trump has had more protesters than Presidents Clinton,Bush, and Obama.

The CHEESE stands alone in Grand Rapids Michigan


GRAND RAPIDS, MI — U.S. Rep. Justin Amash, the first Republican in Congress to call for impeachment proceeding against President Donald Trump, touched on a wide-range of topics during a town hall meeting Tuesday at Grand Rapids Christian High School.

In a freewheeling question-and-answer session that lasted upwards of two hours, Amash, of Cascade Township, touched on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on interference in the 2016 election, trade policy, speculation that he’s planning a third-party presidential run and more.

The audience Tuesday was largely supportive of Amash. Those in attendance cheered when Amash criticized members of Congress who simply follow the “party line,” and several people thanked the congressman for his courage. At one point, the audience gave Amash a standing ovation.

“I don’t know how we tell our children not to lie, that it’s wrong to lie when it’s evident throughout the highest levels of government,” said one attendee, who thanked Amash for standing up to Trump.

Trump: Is it in his Kiss?


Image result for donald trump kiss gif

What is it about Donald John Trump?  That makes him so bloody irresistible that people discard every thing they know is true to get his approval?  Some go so far as to go to jail for this man.    A man who’s loyally is limited to his last name.

Well respected individuals who have spent decades building their personal brands only to have their credibility destroyed after working for the 45th President of the United States.

Sean Spicer, who was a well respected communication director for the Republican National Committee for nearly six years before becoming Trumps Press Secretary.  From day one, he was asked to lie about the size of Trumps Inauguration. The American Press was told to ignore what they see and believe the cow chunks he was attempting to sell.

Kelly Ann Conway, was largely responsible for Trumps presidential victory.  The woman is a power house, a political consultant, a strategist, who is largely responsible for the term “Alternative Facts” adopted by many Trumpers.   Ignore, your eyes,ears and focus on the possible alternatives.  Yes, I saw the bus run him over and kill him, however, it is possible, he died before the bus hit him.

One relationship, I will never understand and one that left many of us scratching our collective heads. Lindsey Graham and Donald Trump.   The only thing I can come up with is the two must be Lovers.   For years, Graham blasted Trump.   Graham was the late Senator John McCain of Arizona best friend and is Megan McCain’s Godfather. It must be sex. (Don’t picture it, you may never want to see again)

It there was one loyal friend who walked through the fire it was Jeff Sessions. His first Attorney General and former two term ator from Alabama was uber loyal to the President.  Not loyal enough to do Jail time.  During the confirmation hearings Sessions said he didn’t have contact with the Russians during presidential campaign.  How so nevah, the press said “Oh but you did!” Sessions recused himself from the Russian Investigation.  This set the Trumpster on fire!!! Any possible fix was gone and Session became enemy number one and endured many insults from the Prez.

Mother of three, a daughter of banjo playing preacher man. Sarah Huckabee Sanders lied to the press every single day.  The pearl necklace wearing lady was Sean Spicers replacement as the Press Secretary.    Mr’s Sanders admitted her sins during the Mueller probe.   While she later called it “A slip of the tongue” she lied about Comey and the FBI staffers not having confidence in him,  lied about Trump Jr and Russian adoptions and the list goes on…………

 3 who knew!

While the Trumpster may have a devastating kiss, there were a few who Immune and had their own agenda.  All of these individuals arrived at the White House dirty and they charmed Trump.

Actually there were four.  A Tide wash couldn’t whiten Mike Flynn’s whites.   Obama, and others warned Trump. This man is more than tainted he’s nasty!  The retired US Army Lieutenant General had a poor reputation.  After retirement as a consultant he took money from companies based in Russia. Before becoming the National Security Advisory Flynn told the Russians, the new Trump Administration would remove some the sanctions placed by the Obama Administration.  Even after Flynn’s conviction for lying, Trump remains loyal to him.   (His sentencing is pending)

Paul Manafort was beyond dingetta.  He is rumored to be a member of organized crime (some say for 30 years or more).  Manafort  has taken millions from the Ukraine, above and under the table. He is been under the watch of several governments for years.   Various stories say Trump and Manafort were casual acquaintances and Trump just hired him in early 2016.  It is believed, he wanted in the Trump Administration to benefit his interest in the Ukraine.   In jail, the 70 year old Manafort could be out by 2024.

 Those who Tape

Does anyone really know what Omarosa Manigault Newman’s job was in the White House?  Donald Trump’s favorite African American relationship began when she was a contestant on The Apprentice in 2004 . She took the role literally and probably knows the Trumpster best.  Like DT, she was a Democrat and Republican.   Like DT, she can be charismatic unless your black women.   Like DT, her credibility is routinely questioned.    On Oprah, she accused a cast mate on The Apprentice of calling her a nigger.  No one on the show could verify Omarosa’s account.

January 2018, Omarosa was fired, by John Kelly the White House Chief of Staff.   Reports say she didn’t go willingly.  She fought to see the President and was physically removed by the Secret Service.   She denied being fired, however, she went on Meet the Press and played a tape of her firing.

Turns out that wasn’t the only thing she taped. Shortly after, she appeared on the reality show Big Brother, where she suggested that country is in trouble with Trump at the helm.  Omarosa said, she would never vote for him again.

August 2018, Omarosa’s book about her time in the White House  “Unhinged” reached number one on the New York Times best seller in its second week.   In her book she says the President’s Cognitive functioning is declining.  Omarosa has called Trump a racist. She says there are tapes and that witnesses have confirmed the existence of tapes of Trump repeatedly saying “nigger ” during filming of The Apprentice.   So far, no one had come forward with of these tapes.   There are tapes of Lara Trump attempting to buy her silence.

If there was anyone devoted to Donald Trump it was his Michael Cohen.  Cohen was his personal Attorney from 2006 to 2018.  I don’t believe his children is as loyal as Michael Cohen.  He was once the Vice President of the Trump Corporation. He was willing to go the jail for Trump and then Trump turned on him.  Cohen who?  But Cohen made recordings of his conversations and while Bill Clinton lied about Monica, Cohen has receipts and copies of checks.  While Mueller couldn’t use the recordings, the copies and the checks.  New York Southern District Court could, and the court reportedly has everything and poses a much greater threat to Trump than Mueller’s Russian probe.  Next week, Michael Cohen begins his three year prison term.

William Barr was the Attorney General under George W Bush and he could have lived  his life outside the turbulent waters of the Trump the Administration.  In February, he waded in.  He seems to be.everything to the President, that Jeff Sessions wasn’t and it could cost him.  A few months later he finds himself in troubled waters.  Did he lie to Congress in April, when he said that” he didn’t know whether Special Council Robert Mueller supported his conclusions regarding the Russia Report?”   The New York Times reported Barr received a letter from Mueller indicating he was not satisfied with Barr’s conclusions.  In his letter, Mueller specifically says that Barr’s summary laying out the bottom-line conclusions of the report “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this Office’s work and conclusions.   

There are those who believe, he will be a no show and not appear in front of the House, tomorrow.   Should he not appear, he will be in contempt of Congress  That penalty comes with a fine and a maximum one year in jail.   If its is proven he lied to Congress , he could face up to five additional years in prison.

 

William Barr has several pensions, he didn’t need this job. Perhaps the kiss was too powerful! Maybe he wanted back into the game.  But home cheese is scared, rightfully so!  Senator Kamala Harris chewed him up and forced him to say, he hadn’t read the report.  Yikes!    Just think, he could have been at home, watching Maury!

Barr: Slow Dancing


Image result for gif old man dancing

 

Perhaps Attorney General William Barr knew what was ahead.   A few days ago, Barr  said he would not testify to the House Judiciary Committee today, if committee lawyers were allowed to ask follow up questions, a long standing practice.

In light of yesterday’s New York Times story, where we learned special counsel Robert Mueller sent a letter to Barr objecting to Barr’s early description of  the Russia investigation and his conclusion that appeared to clear President Trump.

After Barr’s short letter to the press, the world and the President Trump believed he had been exonerated.

But there were 446 more pages. 

Barr is slow dancing.  Refusing to answer reporters questions.  He has enrolled into the Sarah Huckabee Sanders school of media relations.

Not sure what the repercussions are for not testifying to the House Judiciary Committee.  But no worries,  Robert Mueller is waiting in the wings

Perhaps Barr has a wabbit to pull from his “what-evers”……

Best Friends


Image result for lindsey graham john mccain

Lindsey Graham and John McCain were best friends.  Graham is Megan Mccain’s godfather.   Senator Graham has been largely silent as his best friend is being maligned by President Trump.

 

What about your friends, will they stand their ground,
Will they let you down again?
What about your friends, are they gonna be lowdown, 
Will they ever be around,
Or will they turn their backs on you?   

“What about your friends” written by Dallas Austin and Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez (1992)

 

We have an African American and here she is…..


 

Could someone offer her a chair?

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., speaks to Michael Cohen during a House Oversight Committee hearing as Lynne Patton stands behind him. (Screengrab: Yahoo News Video)

I think one of the reasons that black people loved Bill Clinton, is he knew black people, had black friends.  He and Hillary, didn’t seem out of place in a black church and didn’t need to bring a prop, when he spoke to people of color.

Unfortunately, the need of a prop is still a part of politics today.  There are some politicians, who believe they are more effective if they have a prop when they address a  crowd of people who do not resemble them ,to make those people comfortable.

Yesterday, North Carolina Congressman Mark Meadows brought a prop.  In the form of Lynne Patton.   President Trump former Attorney Michael Cohen testified before the House Oversight Committee. Said  Trump is a racist who told him that African Americans were too stupid to vote for him.  Lynne Patton sole purpose was to tell the world, that she is black and as a black woman she would never work for a racist.

I was troubled as this black women stood in a sea of white faces.  I guess they didn’t have an extra chair.

No one in America, will ever question if our President is a racist.

” Ms Patton very presence offended nearly every woman of color”

Congresswomen Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts posed a question to Michael Cohen

“Would you agree that someone could deny rental units to African-Americans, lead the birther movement, refer to to the diaspora as ‘shithole countries,’ and refer to white supremacists as ‘fine people,’ have a black friend, and still be racist?”  Yes he answered.

 When it was Congresswoman  Rashida Tlaib of Michigan turn to speak, she went further.  “Just because someone has a person of color, a black person working for them does not mean they aren’t racist,” Tlaid said. “And it is insensitive, and some would even say that the fact that someone would actually use a prop, a black woman, in this chamber, in this committee”—here she took a heavy sigh—”is alone racist in itself.”

Congressman Meadows responded angrily, demanding Chairman Cummings strike the Congresswoman’s comment from the record.

Congressman Meadows double down by saying he wasn’t a racist, as his nieces and nephews are people of color.  Clearly the Congressman isn’t close to his family as its very unlikely they would approve the use a person of color as a prop.

Congressmen Meadows lives in a world where people would never work or support anyone who is racist sexist, or homophobic with one exception, if he were President or Congressman from North Carolina.  Some will remember back in 2012, he told his supporters that they were going to send President Obama home to Kenya or wherever it is?

Turns out, Michael Cohen was responsible for Trump hiring Mrs Patton.   Cohen told the Congressman that there were no black executives in the Trump Organization.

Remind me, it is 2019, right?
